Where to Go Camping Guide published by Orca Lodge Order of the Arrow


The online “Where to Go Camping Guide,” is a great resource for units preparing their 2018 calendars. Almost one hundred local camps and parks have been compiled into one convenient web page by Orca Lodge. It is our goal to ensure that all of the units of the Redwood Empire Council have the tools to develop and improve their outdoor adventure programs.

Camping Sites

Take a peek at some of our numerous and local Regional, State, and National parks. Not only does each entry provide general information about campgrounds, it also provides program ideas, and facility specifics. Water availability, fire permissions, and wood sources are all listed for your ease of access. Be sure to check out our comments about each location, for information about tours, fee waivers, and special suggestions to enhance your experience.

Awards Programs

Also in the guide is a list of local council programs, like the Redwood Regional Challenge and San Francisco Bay Area’s Rim Rovers. Take a peek and see what your unit might qualify for, and encourage your youth to investigate the numerous other outdoor adventure awards offered by Boy Scouting.

National High Adventure Bases

Interested in trekking through the New Mexico wilderness, or sailing in the Florida Keys? Boy Scouting’s High Adventure programs are life changing experiences that open up incredible opportunities for youth. Any unit interested in attending a National camp will not only receive testimonials from our guide, but from any Scout and Scouter who has had the opportunity to go.

Upcoming Features

Looking for a new summer camp? Look no farther, our Camping guide will soon include a complete database of summer camps for your units to explore. Have a summer camp you want to recommend to other units? Head to the guide and submit information about your experiences.  Your feedback will help to continue to make this guide a relevant resource for all units in the Council.
